Sunday School is offered during the worship service for preschool and elementary school students. Children sit with their family for the beginning of the worship service and leave for Sunday School after the children’s sermon.
We use the Godly Play curriculum. Godly Play is what Jerome Berryman calls his interpretation of Montessori religious education. It is an imaginative approach to working with children, an approach that supports, challenges, nourishes, and guides their spiritual quest. Godly Play assumes that children have some experience of the mystery of the presence of God in their lives, but that they lack the language, permission, and understanding to express and enjoy that in our culture. In Godly Play, we enter into parables, silence, sacred stories, and sacred liturgy in order to discover God, ourselves, one another, and the world around us.
